Re: Norton Security 2019

Hi hobbitmann:

If you are referring to the free Comcast/Xfinity version of Norton Security Suite, it has recently been replaced with Norton Security Online.

Please see the May 2018 Xfinity support article NEW: Norton Security Online and How To Get It? as well as Norton Security Suite VS Security Online???? Availability of Identity Safe /Password Manager in the Anti-Virus Software & Internet Security board of the Xfinity user forum for more information.

Re: Norton Security 2019

Hi hobbitman:

If you use a free version of Norton Security Suite / Norton Security Online provided by Comcast/Xfinity or another ISP (i.e., not a paid retail version of a Norton Security home consumer product) then your ISP controls the release date of their product updates and the comments below might not apply to you.

Symantec stopped releasing new product upgrades every September a few years ago (Norton v22.0.x was originally released back in September 2014) and newer Norton products are only identified by the version number (e.g., the latest v22.16.0.247 released 12-Oct-2018) at Help | General Information | About.  A few online retailers like amazon.com might use the year "2018" or "2019" in their advertising but I don't think that retail versions of Norton have had a year associated with the product name since Norton 2011 (v18.x) or Norton 2012 (v19.x).

You could ask your question to Norton Customer Support via Live Chat at https://www.norton.com/chat but as a general rule users won't be told about major upgrades (e.g., v22.x to v23.x) until the day the upgrade is posted to the LiveUpdate servers, and an announcement will be posted the same day in the Product Update Announcements blog.  If you log in to the forum you can subscribe to that blog and you will be automatically notified by e-mail when Norton Security (or any other retail Norton product) is updated.

You can also monitor new posts in the Norton EAP Public Beta board.  Before Norton v23.x goes into wide release an Norton v23 Beta version will likely be announced there first for beta testers enrolled in the EAP program.

If you want to prevent an automatic upgrade to Norton v23.x when it's eventually released, disable the setting at Settings | Administrative Settings | Automatic Download of New Version.  This will prevent major upgrades (e.g., v22.x to v23.x) but will not stop the delivery of minor product updates (e.g., v22.16.x to v22.17.x), bug fixes and daily malware definition updates.

Re: Norton Security 2019

Norton has moved away from officially dating their versions. The current method is just to make incremental updates to the product. ie going from 22.15.x.x to 22.16.x.x. They no longer move from, say 21.x.x.x to 22.x.x.x just because there is a new calendar year.

EDIT

Even though you may see retail packaging showing a year version, when you open the package and download the software, you will still (currently) only have the 22.x.x.x version.

@hobbitmann  

Just to add to the excellent info lmacri and peterweb have already provided,  if you do a "Check for New Version" , it will tell you that you are on the current version as long as the first two digits (currently 22) do not change - regardless of the trailing numbers. It will show a new version only if the first two digits change (for example to 23).

Re: Norton Security 2019

We did answer your question. There is no specific 2019 version. Norton now just updates the product as they have new features ready. They no longer wait for the beginning of the year to release on huge updated product.

As I mentioned, you may see retail packaging showing 2019, but the actual product is still the same as the current version being used. There is no version number to look for.

Re: Norton Security 2019

I've seen the type of response @hobbitmann posted in other technical forums. The problem there was the poster was not an English speaker for his first language. It appears that may be the case here just judging by the grammar being used. If the poster would indicate their language of preference a lot of time could be saved and good detailed answers wouldn't go to waste. That might not be the case here but it seems that it sure could be.
